    This worksheet looks great, but the numbering of the squares make it a little confusing. Could it be remade without the squares numbered?

    • Trish (Teach Starter)

      Hi Alicia, I can certainly see how that might be confusing! Can I get you to submit this change suggestion using the changes & updates tab just above the comment section here? That will make sure our teachers see the suggestion and you will be notified if they are able to do this for you.

    I have just spent my time trying to print the Worm subtraction sheet without answers and I repeatedly printed just the answer sheets. Print from 1-6 is all answers. Hope you can fix it up! Thank you! Donna

    • Holly (Teach Starter)

      Hi Donna, I’m so sorry you having trouble printing this resource. When I download the resource I have three worksheets without answers and then three worksheets with the answers. So, if you print pages 1-3 that should give you just the worksheets without answers. Please let me know how you go? If you are still having issues feel free to email us at [email protected] and we’d be more than happy to help.
